Can you believe, two months into the New Year, and I’m still seeing a ton of healthy recipes all over the internet! The exciting thing is that I’m eating them too. I’ve been nomming on salads, veggies, real whole grains, and just a ton of things that are good for me. I have definitely been feeling better because of that!
